Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

Samsung has done it again!

Although I love all my Samsung products, this microwave is awesome. So far I have yet to have any issues with it cooking, venting, or even when the kids use it.

I use the reheat functions my son uses the popcorn button, and the Pizza button reheats to perfection. We stick with Samsung for a reason, they get it right. From phones, tablets, even the fridge and dishwasher as well, we are never disappointed.

Very nice microwave, very quiet, bright LED light, nice buttons, etc

This unit is very nice. I tried 5 microwaves out in one month and this one is the best. It is super quiet, quieter than any other one on the market.Very nice LED light, 4 levels on exhaust fan rocks.

All the features are great. This is the first microwave to have an LED light that is super bright. Samsung makes some great products. I own many Samsung items. I love the fact that the buttons are on the bottom of the door. September 2012 is a new deisgn from the August 2012 models. The buttons and panel are even better to use and see in the dark. Nice unit.

Great microwave/hood

I love my new microwave/range hood. The interior is easy to clean, the display is great and the fan is very powerful (much, much better than my old one, which wasn't a Samsung).

I love the LED light and the fact that it is situated at the front. Overall, great purchase!

Sleek appearance, powerful, and awesome features but electrical problems persist

We installed our Samsung SMH2117[S] on October 31, 2011 and just over one year later, the fan would exhaust fan would not turn off, the clock wouldn't work, display panel flashes and it made an unusual clicking and zapping noise.

Fortunately, I purchased an extended warranty and the electronic controller located in the door was replaced. After the authorized service repair was made, the unit worked perfectly for several months and in May 2013, the clock has started malfunction again, and we have noticed other unexplained electrical issues. Although we have really enjoyed the unit, its many features and its sleek appearance, our confidence in the reliability of this product has fallen appreciably. This unit was at the high end of the range for similar units and we didn't mind paying the premium price based on our experience with some of Samsung's other very reliable products. If Samsung can correct the electrical issues (which were also reported recently in Consumer Reports), I would definitely recommend this unit.
